The members of the Pommersheim Family represented on this web site date back to the mid-1800's in Neu Arad which was a part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire at the time. Neu Arad (also Uj Arad) is now a part of Arad, a city in western Romania.

The Family tree contains six generations and is in no way complete. I welcome and encourage all family members to contribute whatever they can to fill in the blanks.
